True. He has the key to clearing the Renegade's name with his friends sitting right between his shoulderblades, but sharing that with the public at large would be a death sentence. Showing Zed and Mara would put them
in danger, too - if their discs were ever examined by the Occupation for any
reason, it would come out that they were harboring a fugitive and their lives would be forfeit, too - so I imagine it's not something he'd do lightly. (Then again, Mara's already got some pretty incriminating data on her disc as it is...)

Although the loss of Able played a huge impact on the episode and I loved the character, I would hope that they don't find, or didn't plan on, bringing the character back. (like he escaped at the last moment and jumped from the other side of the crane and washed up along another shoreline/dock area.)
If any program is meant to take over the garage, it would have to be Mara. We know how Able felt about her, and she's definitely proven herself fit to run the place. And so we see another program unexpectedly thrust into a position of responsibility... more common ground for Mara and Beck.
Able was awesome, and seeing him get killed off like that hit me hard. It's because
I cared about the character that I don't
want to find out he miraculously survived. His death had real weight, and bringing him back now would just cheapen that.
